More Information...

This shingle and rock beach is located just west of the popular Exmoor coastal villages of Lynton and Lynmouth. It is located within the grounds of the Lee Abbey Estate, hence the name. Whilst sometimes referred to as Lee Bay, this is a little confusing as there is another, better known beach of this name just along the coast at Woolacombe. The beach is easy to get to with a car park just above in the grounds of the Abbey. From here it is an easy walk the 200 metres or so down to the cove. Swimming is usually fine and the best times are at high and low tide, however be aware there may be strong currents further out. Towards low tide a good stretch of sand is exposed.
